AIL’s health program truly is a life saver; providing people with quality care where there are few, if any, other medical options. The health program is based on a holistic approach providing treatment and education together. So far in 2014, over 119,000 people have received care through clinics or Community Health Worker posts (CHWs), and health education has reached over 69,000 through clinics, CHWs, and workshops. This quality of care and extraordinary reach of the AIL program would not be possible without donations from people like you. Thank you.
Here are a couple of the many life saving and life changing stories we hear:
A clinic patient:” Lailoma, a pregnant woman came to clinic about 20 weeks ago. She had high blood pleasure and high temperature. She was prescribed some tablets then she had to come to clinic every two weeks. On week 36 after a checkup, she was referred to hospital in the city for an operation. Fortunately, it was successful and her baby girl was healthy after birth. On the tenth day after her delivery, Lailoma came to clinic to thank the staff for saving her and child’s lives.”
From a reproductive health workshop participant: “My name is Anita and I strongly suggest that AIL hold such workshops for all Afghan women in order to decrease the rate of child and maternal death. I am a university student and the topics shocked me. It is so vital for every woman to attend such workshops and learn about reproductive health. I am going to transfer what I learned in this workshop to every Afghan women I see from now on. I am going to stop mothers’ deaths. I thank AIL. “
